Anyone have any diagrams or schematics or anything?
I'm also looking to do this. It seems like a lot of progress was made in this thread, but then it just died off. Surely someone got this working. I'd love to see an update.

TL;DR

The thread for the 2016 TRD Pro listed auto headlights as one of the changes. Once released it seems like it might be easier to order the parts and install them than try and rig something up? I'm sure member's who work for Toyota will be able to pull diagrams at some point.

Those were features that are included in the 2015 Pros as well. The only changes were the paint colors. My 2015 has the auto headlights. The Limiteds have them as well.

Auto headlights have been around for a while, but only on select models. My 2014 SR5 doesn't have them, while the 2014 Limited does. I'd really just like to know what all it takes to install the Limited parts in my SR5. Several people have said it requires a different wiring harness. Does anyone know where I can find the right one?

I hadn't paid much attention to the feature changes as I have a 2013 SR5 and don't plan on upgrading anytime soon.

Seems like Toyota TIS should have diagrams for the Limited and TRD Pro. Just thinking about it doesn't seem like it should be too complicated, the auto lights have a sensor that plugs into a harness that detects light level, and then switches on the headlights while adjusting the gauges. My post was just to highlight that getting the factory parts from Toyota should lead to less headaches than trying to rig it up on your own.

Hi Bimmer-Bob,

I'm leaving this 5'th gen 4Runner 'limited' Headlight circuit diagram here on this thread; hoping that you (everyone) will accomplish your goal. I took a quick look at the diagram and marked the essentials needed to make it work, "see below":

It looks like you'll need only four parts as noted by the I.D. labels in pen e.g., the Headlight dimmer switch assm, Dimmer SW. harness, Automatic light control sensor, and the Light control sensor harness. The Main body ECU Network compu are ALL the same from 2010 to 2015, so no changes needed there.

Cheers!

That's EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thank you! I think I'm going to give this a shot if I can find the parts for a reasonable enough price.

How can I find the part numbers for those harnesses?

Just call your local Toyota dealership, they'll fax/email them to you!

You ever find part numbers for these harnesses, or make any other progress on this?

No, I never did. I wouldn't call myself much of an expert when it comes to this stuff, so I don't know if I dare take it on without some clear instructions ahead of time. I would still love to make it work though. It's kind of a bummer that this thread seemed to die.

Yeah, I'm pretty much the same as you - I'm sure I could do it, but I prefer to have some clear guidance rather than be the trailblazer who starts picking his new-ish truck's dash apart.

I found this post covering the same retrofit in a 4th Gen. I bet our install would be much the same. I wonder if our truck uses the same wiring harness? The thing I can't quite make out from the thread is what he is unplugging from behind the instrument cluster to plug in the light sensor harness.
